Tamahra Martin, "The Pompitus of Percussion"
Jazz and Blues percussionist Tamahra Martin has been on time for a good long while,
in many ways, both with Fungii Mama, a jazz combo, with the Midnight Train
Blues Band and others.
Tamahra cut her 'blues teeth' in 1994, sitting in with Bill Bouchard's Next Blues
Band and playing with Alligator and the Bayou Blues Band. She has played with
Lee Durley, Dennis Murphy, Joe Lucido, and other well known Blues, R&B and funk
musicians on the Monterey Peninsula. A "collector" of styles, Tamahra brings an
eclectic range of genres into her percussion work with The Midnight Train.
